ALAN Stockdale has been re-elected federal president of the Liberal Party by just one vote, overcoming a challenge by high profile former minister Peter Reith.

 

The former Victorian Treasurer defeated Howard government minister Peter Reith by 57-56, after an unusual and hard-fought public battle for the party presidency not seen since the 1980s.

 

"I really am moved by the support of council," a teary Mr Stockdale said after his victory.

 

Mr Stockdale pledged to implement the findings of Mr Reith's review into the Liberals' 2010 campaign.

 

"I am a reformer," he told the party's federal council.

 

Mr Stockdale said the Liberal Party was on the cusp of an unprecedented period in power in the states and federally.
